Are you ready to try doing tie dye with flowers? If so, these beautiful ideas will spark your creativity.
I have gotten into tie dye lately (see the tie dye classes I found to try!) and while I love the bright colors there are times when I really want to have the more subtle and organic look of natural floral and plant dyes.
I also realized that you can do flower bundle dye as well which is new to me but I am really excited about it because the results are stunning and it is super easy to do.
I pulled together a list of items to tie dye in case you are interested.
With both of those things in mind, I bring you this list of natural tie dye options you are sure to enjoy.

Tie Dye with Flowers
The subtle beauty of flower dyed items will amaze you and I just know you are going to have to try this throwback craft.
Tie dye your items with flowers and plants for a more natural and organic option while still getting to enjoy the popularity of this craft.
Floral Imprinted Blouse
Here is a flower bundle project to try with floral imprinting. You use a variety of lovely flowers and get astonishingly gorgeous results.
They dyed on silk but you can use cotton as well if you wish.
Eco Tie Dye Scarf
This fabric scarf is made with all natural items they gathered from their yards and fields including marigold petals, blackberries and blackberry leaves, cranesbill, twinberry.
The items are layed out on the fabric and rolled. They are then wrapped with string to create a bundle and dipped in mordanted (alum) water.
Bundle-Dyed Fabric Table Runner
She used cotton to make this table runner but you could use wool or silk as well.
The suggestion here is to use what you have and I really love that. She suggests taking an old bouquet of flowers or even a few scraps from dinner such as onion skins. Using what we have has always been a smart idea1
The results are always a mystery when you do these projects and that is certainly part of the fun.
Botanical Tie Dye Fabric
You can create your own botanical tie dyed fabric which allows you to make anything you want!
I love the colors here. They really drew me in and I hope you love them as well.
Natural Tie Dye Scarf
The more of these natural ideas you see the more you realize the huge variety of colors you can get out of flowers and plants.
These are wonderful and the very nature-oriented brownish colors really stand out. Wouldn't this be perfect for a fall outfit?
Silk Scarf Flower Bundle Dyed
Silk is a great material to use for dyeing and yes, these are flower dyed.
Just look at the variations in color. So nice. These would make a sweet gift.
Bundle-Dye with Flowers!
Take a trip to get some flowers or use what you have in your yard. She used camellia flowers and the results are so soft, subtle and pastel.
It is possible that if you left the bundle together longer you could also get more saturated results but I love this just how it is.
Go check out all of the lovely ideas in this post. It is filled to the brim with inspiration.
Though there are no instructions, you do get a chance to see what is possible with natural flower and plant dye.
